to run to the left of the obama administration he is tree to ned ahat in the republican minute. maybe this is more is support for that than i think but i doubt there really is. >> chris: nina, the president thinks bringing the troops home not in a rush but steadily and eventually is a winning message in the last campaign, frankly not talking about open-ended commitments. does the gop need to recognize and respond to a war weariness in the country? >> i think the drone issue and war we areness are two totally different issues. rand paul's war and drones is a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism right now. i'm not sure where that gets us. i agree with bill that the gop doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates new election. thin in the 56% of moderates self-described moderates went to barack obama not to the party. those are the people you need to get back. you will not do it by a drone going after drones. you will do it by not making comments about "legitimate rape or you need to appeal to single women.
to see you. >> president obama did try to bring some republicans with him on this trip. politico reports eric cantor got an invitation, but he said he was too busy. president obama and netanyahu were busy watching developments in syria where rebels claim their president used chemical weapons on their own people. president obama says he's skeptical assad used chemical weapons. >> we have been clear that the use of chemical weapons guess against the syrian people would be a mistake. >> by the way, netanyahu agrees with president obama on syria conservatives tried to use our relationship with israel to grab votes. they accused president obama of not getting it. and some called him the most antiisrael president in history. bb set the record straight. >> i want to thank you for the investment you've made in our relationship and strengthening the alliance between our countries. the president has reaffirmed more than any other president, israel's right and duty to defend itself against any threat. so it's a pro found honer to host you, the leader of the free world, at this historic time in our
is sound and fury. it's just making noise. that sums up the job president obama does today. >> the republican party has to change by going forward to the classical and timeless ideas enshrined in our constitution when we understand that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. then we'll become the dominant national party again. it's time for us to revive reagan's law. for liberty to expand government should shrink. >> i support guy doubles in an effort to advance opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. >> michael: see, it's never too soon to talk about this. some of the really k real kooks were on display. here is senator ted cruz talking just about that. >> we did have a certain i am mans describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. i have to admit when rand and i first heard that we thought maybe that was a new kind of drone. but if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wacko bird, then count me as a proud wacko bird. >> michael: senator, we have already counted you a wacko bird. you didn't have to ask for our vote. the c
to be investigated. the embassador echoed what president obama said. another key republican, mike rogers, the house intelligence chairman, was on cbs news this morning and said he thinks, it appears to him, chemical weapons were used but he's a former fbi official who wants to see forensic evidence. that's important for a republican lawmaker to underline saying we need evidence before we say chemical weapons were used. >> ed henry on a historic day in jerusalem. we look forward to your report tonight. >>> more about israeli u.s. relation from the director of center for strategic and middle east programs. man, people talk about these two men at adversaries and today they say there's not much daylight on iranian, the thanks and accolades and friendship and we're the best friends, it doesn't sound as if there's a problem. >> the optics are good. everybody wants this trip to be successful. there's a lot at stake for the president. a lot at stake for the israeli prime minister and they talked about no daylight between the u.s. and israel on iran but there's a difference in the language they're speaking
bachmann made some unfounded claims, this time about obama care which house republicans are trying again to repeal. she says it will literally kill people, literally. kill them. dead. before going further, we should point out that we're not partisan on this. when democratic congressman allen grayson said the gop's health care plan was for people to die quickly, we called him out on it. we're not trying to pick parties or choose sides. we're interested in facts and politicians who play fast and loose with the facts which of course brings us back to michele bachmann. i say again because you may remember that when last we caught up with the minnesota congresswoman just two days ago, we were literally trying to catch up with her as she raced away from our dana bash. we sent dana to talk with her because the congresswoman was giving a speech on the benghazi killings, she veered into claims, false ones, that the obama white house budget was loaded with lavish perks, including a staff just to walk the first dog. here's dana's exchange with ms. bachmann. >> what i want to ask you about is the fa
to republicans that says obama 2.0 is still on. >> megyn: we mentioned some of the sound bites in the introduction about mr. perez from somebody who used to work at the doj. that somebody is jay christian adams, he was a do jchj attorne and he worked on the new black panthers case that mr. perez testified about earlier and an openly conservative man. mr. perez is not. so they clearly have an ideological divide between the two of them. he went on the mark levin radio show last week and had the following to say about mr. perez. >> totally lawless. this is a man for whom law is a nuisance. he brings the cases, you might remember, against school districts to allow children to dress in drag. he harasses pro-life protesters in florida where a judge awarded $120,000 in sanctions against the justice department. i mean, this is a man who is advancing a radical agenda using his power in the obama administration. >> megyn: and just to follow up, the case against the pro-life protester in florida he's right that sanctions, attorney's fees were awarded because the doj was thought to have ov
attempts at repeal by house republicans. the law was upheld by the supreme court, president obama was even re-elected. some republican governors are planning for the expansion. what is she talking about? >>> up next, marco rubio and rand paul, who has the juice on the right wing? this will be fun for people on the left. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. i decided enough is enough. ♪ [ spa lady ] i started enbrel. it's clinically proven to provide clearer skin.

verse is lit up by saying all you guys are so unfair because we know president obama doesn't control legislation, the republican house does. why don't you tell us, yes, republicans need do things, but is there more barack obama can do to use his bully bill put to push this issue forward? >> yes, and he knows it. social security happened because of franklin roosevelt. i don't think you can anyone anyone in congress back then responsible for social security. civil rights and voting rights act in '64 and '65 were because lindon johnson took the southern democrats and others literally by the ears and said, you will vote for this. people want it. h is right, end of story. go up there and vote for it. and obama, president obama, i really think he just has to get his game on here and start kicking some butt because the people will be behind him if he does. >> even though the republicans have shown no willingness to negotiate with him on anything else, you think this has to be an effort he's got to make? >> absolutely. i think -- i don't want our side to be constantly whining and complaining
. president obama speaking to republicans at dinner at that posh jefferson hotel and also speaking to the republican caucus said basically that he would go to work on some entitlement reform. senator shaheen i'll direct this to you. regarding cost of living adjustments, regarding means testing, regarding eligibility. the president said he would put that on the table. i'll give him credit for that. why don't we take it up on that. senate democrats are opposed to any entitlement reform from what i gather. you all are way to the left of president obama and i believe the senate democratic caucus is a huge barrier to the kind of entitlement reform that mr. corker and frankly president obama are talking about. >> senator corker and i certainly agree on the fact that one of the best things we can do is come up with a long term plan to deal with this country's debt and deficit, but one that also allows us to grow the economy in the meantime and obviously i've said all along we got to look at all aspects of the budget, we need to look at the mandatory programs and there are a lot of democra
to be benefited by the policy. connell: the republicans put up a good fight for the other obama nominees. do they want to go down that road again? is it worth it? if so, why? >> chuck grassley, the senator from iowa, certainly thinks so. that's because not only does perez want to use the impact analysis, but he doesn't want the supreme court to rule on constitutionality. there was a case last year in st. paul, minnesota, a case pending before the supreme court, would have given the court a chance to take a shot at the desperate impact and whether or not it's constitutional, and there's some evidence that justice got involved and persuaded the city to withdrawal the case. i think chuck grassley wants to ask about that, and i hope the senate delves in. dagen: could be an exciting confirmation process for a labor secretary. >> deservedly so. dagen: than seen in the past. what else should they ask about perez's background? >> well, it's -- i think he's emblematic of and administration thatments to use the rule of law selectively to help some people instead of others and use statistics selectivel

of the republicans' second committee issuing a statement saying that president obama's ncaa bracket is a shocking failure of leadership. the house republican conference put this video on youtube equity the same complaint, how dare he? all kinds of congressional republicans went on twitter insisting that he should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it's march madness republican style. the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they should not turn over any more but cannot stop themselves. also, clearly, it will be in zepa. don't tell john maynor, because he would be furious. that does it for us tonight. we will see you tomorrow night. right now it is time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from congress. >> yo
seemingly gotten the upper hand on president obama and republicans, remember, half of the congress has an a rating, more than half the congress has an a rating from the nra. so some republicans are nervous about getting primaried should they join up with democrats. jon: well, joe biden who has been leading the white house's push for gun control legislation had this to say regarding the senate: it must be awful to be in public office and concluding that even though you might believe you should take action, that you can't take action because of the political consequences you may face. isn't that representative government? i mean, if these senators and representatives are voting the way they think their constituents want, that's what they should do. >> well, no, that's right. and every senator and every house member's going to make up their own mind on how to vote here. and the white house knew from the get go that it was not going to to the assault weapons ban, but they thought they could get some type of background check, and that is going to be in the bill, but it doesn't have the 60 v
for the rich. >> don't tell me republicans are the party of millionaires and billionaires when obama's campaign arm is charging people a half a million dollars for a meeting over near the white house. we're for millionaires and billionaires? come on. >> come on! how could anyone possibly think republicans are the party of billionaires and millionaires? forget that a new study shows paul ryan's budget could cut millionaires' taxes by $200,000. and what a coincidence, eight of the ten largest individual donors of the 2012 election were republicans. and the american people must have it wrong, too. a new poll finds 68% believe republicans favor the wealthy. senator mcconnell, this could be a problem. he's heading to palm beach this week for a fundraiser, hosted by hillary and wilbur ross. guess what? wilbur ross, say it with me, is a billionaire. did senator mcconnell think all the republicans' funny money would hide the truth about who they're really working for? nice try. but we got you. all stations come over to mission a for a final go. this is for real this time. step seven point two one two.
are you, my friend. good to see you. >> good seeing you. >> president obama did try to bring some republicans with him on this trip. a political reports that air kantor got it, but he was too busy. there were also busy today watching developments in neighboring syria, where rebels claimed their own president used chemical weapons on a village in the north. the attack killed 31 people, and the government sealed off the area to keep out journalists and international observers. president obama says he is not sure. >> the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. they must understand they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. >> netanyahu agrees with president obama on syria. conservatives tried to use our relationship with israel to grab votes. they accused president obama of not getting it, of being dangerous. some called him the most anti-israel president in american history. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendshi
not just work on those? >> and why that's not good enough for obama. >> plus, should the republican party take a different direction to attract women and minority voters? >> we need to call out the hypocrisy on the left. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applaus [applause] >> thank you very much and happy st. patrick's day weekend to everybody. i wore the tie just for the occasion, only weekend of the whole year i get to wear it so i hope you like it. welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. my first trip to israel occurred nearly 40 years ago in july of 1973, just a couple of months before the yom kippur war, i was just a teenager at the time. i've been going back ever since and when i visit israel i always purchase a palestinian map and ask the people i take there to open the map and show me where israel is. israel is not on the map. interesting, isn't it? . israelis are asked to make peace with a people who refuse to acknowledge their existence. a security wall and before it was erected it was common for them to put bombs on their bellies and unt

's because in this last election, obviously, the groups that support, that are in the obama coalition, those democrats are on the rise, they engaged at record levels, and the incorrect estimation about vote turnout led the republicans to not only lose, but be surprised by their losses. so you can look at it that way. midterm elections traditionally are older and whiter, and the kind of voters that have carried obama to victory twice through his very, very shrewd and, you know, expert techniques do not engage in midterm elections, no so interested in congressman snodgrass' reelection or the challenge he's running in district 5 to a republican congressman. we're also looking at the diminished opportunity for democrats who talked about the 17 seats that sabato mentions. these swing seats are disappearing. they were 174 or so in 1998, only 99 of them in 2012. there's just not a lot of opportunity to take back a district that mitt romney won. and no ore expert -- other expert so far that knows the map is disagreeing with what larry sabato is saying about how hard it would be. jon: there isn't a p

message that barack obama ran on with robert and ran on again in his re-election campaign. the republicans don't get that basic concept. even when they're talking about government programs, they're talking about them as charity. they're not charity. >> steve schmidt we're out of time on this segment, need a quick word before you go. your reaction to cpac? >> i said a couple weeks ago, it has become the star wars bar scene of the conservative movement. it was certainly that and more as we look at this. the good news for republicans is that group's power is mostly illusory. they're a group that will make a lot of noise, it will be incumbent on our serious candidates to call out the excesses of some of the people at cpac to be taken seriously by the middle of the country. >> robert gibbs, steve schmidt, howard fineman, thank you for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, a new poll showing a surge in the support of marriage equality, support that now includes hillary clinton. but according to john boehner, he will never support marriage equality. but john boehner has a startling new point of agre
their budget cutting proposals on the idea that we do have a debt crisis. republicans in the age of obama have never wanted to mount a frontal, philosophical attack on social security and medicare because they're the two most popular things the american government provides. so instead of saying we want to cut and or eliminate social security and medicare because like rand we do not believe the government should be in the business of providing health care and or pensions and disability benefits to anyone, ever. instead, republicans have been saying we love medicare and we love social security but we simply can't afford those programs in their current form because of our debt crisis, because of our huge budget deficit, so reluctantly and bravely, we republicans propose significant cuts to medicare and social security, cuts that we republicans believe will make those programs more solvent and last longer. because remember, we republicans love medicare, just love it, and we love social security. we just can't afford them. dropping the budget crisis argument moved john boehner and president obama m

existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back home in washington, very few people are expecting a breakthrough anytime soon. >> back to the middle east, where egypt's justice minister has warned that the lynching of criminals in the streets by angry citizens signals cassette in the death of the state." the comments came after suspected thieves were beaten and hanged by an angry mob in a rural village in egypt. bamut egypt's opposition blames the government for the failure to restore law and order in the country. it says police are using torture in the very same w
this into a republican issue. when obama does it at one point he has a real position, he's for it. >> sure. >> sean: then he's running for president, polls don't show he's in agreement with the american people and then he's against it and gets reelected and now i can be for it again. now what? that is what everything everybody i know, dennis praguer, hates about politicians. god bless her, i like hillary clinton in some ways, i've got to tell you something, that's so phony, i want to read this prompter and tell you. it didn't seem sincere. >> we've got to be clear, it's a flip-flop as they say in the case of the president because he knew it was not popular when he was running in 2008 and he knows it's popular now and that's fine and maybe he sincerely changed his mind, but i believe originally he was for same-sex marriage. the thing is that what you just said is a very important point and i'd like to address it about stoogy old republicans or men or/and women. >> sean: and the republican as well. >> rand paul changed his position on immigration reform. >> let's-- it's too complex, this subject, to
. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united states. and romney delivered a speech in israel that echoed netanyahu's talking points at that time on iran. >> we should employ any and all measures to dissuade the iranian regime from its nuclear cour
in recent weeks or real frustration trying to covers the budget debates. republicans cover five issues, they want to cut the budget deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not sma
, it is absolutely a bright to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in that number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and the money if the party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to the operatives out there, to make that connection, to look for ways to expand the party at tracks? >> that is a big part of it. i commend the chairman. it was a very thoughtful, ferro report. it has some good recommendations. campaignis, the obama and the democrats did a good job of having people out there. they did that better than we did. they had a presence in all communities you had that you needed to turn out, to win. we need to be in the community year round, cycle through cycle, not just in the last three months of an election. having storefront campaign headquarters and party headquarters, people in the committee all the time is an important part. a lot of the focus has been on d
that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things which may be important but sound a bit frivolous to people reading it. jon: why is that important? >> well i think it is not everyone watches fox news. not everyone watches, the evening news at night. some people read entertainment weekly and don't actually get serious hard news. some way to reach out into the culture and to the people who are not watching cable news 24 hours a day. maybe go on some of these sho
care of old business and reducing barack obama's exposure domestically from republicans who have been hammering him because they believe he somehow doesn't care enough about israel. it's about maximizing the chances of taking the house back in 2014. he doesn't need the old business of thisnagging notion that he's somehow the most adversarial president toward the state of israel in the history of the relationship and to steve's point, let's be clear, the reason israelis end up expecting american presidents to quote/unquote love them is because barack obama's two immediate predecessors did precisely that! bill clinton was in love with the idea of israel. he wrote in his memoirs about rabin "i loved rabin as i've love nod other man." and george w. bush, with all the frustrations wh ariel sharon was enamored with him as well. so obama inherited a high bar and, frankly, didn't make his own situation any better. he is not an emoter in chief. he has a tough time connecting so that's point number one, number two, this is a down payment trip. this is not a trip to reassure netanyahu on the pal
to talk about it, ben lee bolt, press secretary for president obama's 2012 campaign and republican strategist, john fury, president of quinn gillespie communications. you guys are veteran watchers of washington. there's the whiff of possible bipartisan compromise here. john, tell me, it seems it's in republicans' political interests at least to find a way toward a deal. do you expect some sort of big immigration bill to come out? and does it include a path to citizenship? >> it has to be big enough to have enough momentum to get through the house and so the house -- >> very good point. >> so the house doesn't kill it. i think it's in the best political interests of the party to get a comprehensive immigration bill. to either legalization or citizenship. i don't know how that's going to work out. the problem is the republican base is still very concerned about it. last time that mccain went to arizona, he went to town hall meeting and got all kinds of gri. >> absolutely. >> i wasn't sure he did it on purpose to see how much grief he would get? >> it's like same-sex marriage, the bas
some people's thinking right? this leads this avalanche of barack obama, the republicans coming out with this amicus brief, that kind of thing, leads to this highest public opinion poll we have seen so far. the constitutional law scholars say by far the most important of all of these factors at this point is public opinion. and that the court must weigh the institutional role right? of getting the constitution right, against having a reputation where the people, you know, see it as a place where justice will be done and not delivering decisions that are so far out of the main stream that then you have to, you know, send u.s. marshals out or whatever. you don't want to be in a situation like that. i'm not saying that -- of course constitutionally we want what is right to be done but the court weighs those things so public opinion does matter. by the way -- >> bill: for them to rule any other way right now -- for them to rule that -- that marriage equality is -- or the ban on marriage -- on same-sex marriage is constitution am would be just flying in the face of --
